What is AQA Religious Studies?

  • The philosophy of religion.
  • The study of ethical theory and its application to modern ethical dilemmas
  • An exploration into the development of Christian thought regarding key religious issues
  • Philosophy is the love of wisdom and is an enquiry into the big questions in life.

The ethics section focuses on ethical theories and their application. The Development of Christian thought addresses key Christian concepts.

Year 1 Course Content

The philosophy of religion explores ancient Greek influences such as Plato and Aristotle; and looks at arguments for and challenges against a belief in God as well as the nature of the mind, body and soul. Ethics investigates a range of religious and secular ethical theories and the application of these ethical theories to modern moral issues such as medical practices. There is also an investigation into the development of Christian thought, such as the nature and purpose of human life, immortality of the self and the revelation of God. 

Year 2 Course Content

During the second year, the philosophy of religion course looks at the nature of religious language and experience as well as beliefs surrounding the soul and life after death. Ethics explores the role of conscience within decision making, the nature of ethical language and analyses what it means to be ‘good’. It also encompasses a study of whether humanity is at liberty to exercise their freewill or whether life is predetermined.
